About this book

This two-volume, fully referenced resource provides color photographs and range maps for 106 native and nonindigenous species and includes detailed information on
- past and present distribution
- life history and demography
- reproduction and diet
- landscape ecology and evolution
- diseases, parasites, and threats from toxic substances
- conservation and management

North of the Mexican border, frogs can be found from sea level to the high Rocky Mountains and from the south Florida Keys to the Arctic Ocean. They live in tropical lowlands, grassland prairies, deserts, and alpine-tundra habitats. Originally understood to be entirely freshwater in nature, a few frogs and tadpoles have been found associated with saline habitats near oceans and in isolated desert wetlands. Some species have restricted habitat requirements, whereas others occur contiguously from the arid plains or humid southeastern forests to the high tundra.

With many frog populations declining or disappearing and developmental malformations and disease afflicting others, scientists, conservationists, and concerned citizens need up-to-date, accurate information. Frogs of the United States and Canada is a comprehensive resource for those trying to protect amphibians as well as for researchers and wildlife managers who study biodiversity. From acrobatic tree frogs to terrestrial toads, C. Kenneth Dodd Jr. offers an unparalleled synthesis of the biology, behavior, and conservation of frogs in North America.

"This book is useful not just for biology teachers and researchers but also for wildlife managers and others involved in conservation. It is really a very useful reference source, a sort of a mini encyclopedia on frogs."
– Deekay Daulat – Biz India Magazine

Both professional biologists and serious amateurs will find the contribution to be the best summary of knowledge on the biology, natural history, and conservation for each species."
